Here are the missing pieces on the drug/terror war. There were drug-running flights done by the US military in cooperation with the CIA. How they were organized and managed is detailed in the book, The Final Mission; Spooky 8. The security detail would be taken out on the out of country end of the eighth mission for the detail, set up by a mole in the detail. Then I ran into the article, The Secret History of Rupert Murdoch on the web. It is a teaching example of how a person of his “stature” invests and profits from the drug business, remembering most all the private banking divisions of the big five banks from hell are deeply involved in all aspects of the killer drug business as are a fair number of our political and economic leaders in the US. This article proved all that I have been saying about the situation all these years. The book The Iran-Contra Scandal put out by the National Security Archives makes the linkage between GHW Bush and the central/south american mass murderers. And people forget that Big Pharma drugs kill way more people in the US than any of the legally prohibited drugs, and they are all over the place in the US along with the meth. Many people use the legally prohibited drugs medicinally too, because the prescription drugs are too expensive for them to purchase.
Why were most of the people in the US incapable of coming to the conclusion that a medically based harm reduction approach was the correct strategy to use in response to the drug/alcohol problem? Because everything in the US is about the money and they spent around $75 billion a year misleading the American people away from what would have worked while cutting higher education funding to the bone, privatizing and corporatizing education, and dropping the bottom out of the economy and throwing everyone in prison who may have been a problem to the rise of fascism in the US. How much power do these people wield? A train stopped ten miles south of Medford Oregon and offloaded around 50 barrels of chemicals for the meth business down there awhile ago and these kind of things go on all the time. No one talks about it because they’re fearing for their lives if they do.
What are the solutions to the problems above? Doing a demand side strategy that alleviates poverty and and de-stresses and resolves the individuals specific stress-driven brain malnutrition and other medical issues. Most homeless people are there because of socioeconomic factors completely beyond their control and have untreated medical conditions. Medically supported housing and good food is the missing piece. Look at Canada; free higher education, housing trusts, and healthcare; it works. The most important investment a country can make is in it’s people. They used to have a lot more than just that and it worked even better then. And most all drug treatment programs don’t deal with a person’s nutritional deficiencies; this is also what is missing in PTSD treatment in the US, whatever the source of the trauma, whether combat related, or inner city violence related, or domestic violence related. Look at the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine. Bastyr University has done a lot of stress work, but I don’t know if they were smart enough to see how that related to the treatment of PTSD in all of it’s manifestations in the US Drag.
People talk about violence against women but violence is as Amerikkkan as apple pie. It is everywhere and affects everyone too, more or less, with the most ubiquitous form of violence in the Amerikkkan dream/nightmare being institutionalized poverty inflicted on the system by it’s criminal leaders. We fight about everything, rather than rethink anything at all and try a different, better way. The US is at least ten times as violent as Canada, but they’re catching up with us now that they have cut all their anti-poverty programs to the bone too. When I took a somewhat close look at the laws developed in the 1980’s by the new nazi drug warriors, I saw the best and brightest legal minds working to develop some of the best law ever made. Too bad that it was dedicated to a strategy so misguided, so misconceived, but that’s stupid greed in the US; really, really competent and yet completely depraved in their life’s expression; so sure that they’re right they don’t listen to anyone who threatens their personal status quo. And so many times are still completely wrong about so much. You know what works? Really good food; see study Frequent Food Insecurity Among Needle Drug Users, and think about this; 25% of homeless people in Los Angeles have hepatitis C. And I keep on searching for better multivitamins and that Columbia Gorge Vitasea Superfood Drink.
